The Bradman Honouree is a prominent title handed to two named personalities in the cricketing fraternity every year.
The honorees are chosen on the basis of services to the sport as well as values, determination and humility epitomized by Test batting legend Sir Bradman.
Waqar Younis took to Twitter to thank fellow cricket legends for congratulating him.
Famous names such as Sachin Tendulkar, Mark Anthony and Adam Gilchrist have also been recipients of the honorable title.
